Steve loved driving trucks and big rigs; the bigger, the better. He was a simple, easy-going guy with such passion for playing music, which came effortlessly for him. He loved playing guitar, violin and piano. He used his gifts to worship the Lord with his beautiful voice. He loved the outdoors, surrounded by God's wonders, hiking, camping, and if there was water, he was in it.
Steve loved his family and friends beyond words. He loved people and talking to everyone. He could start up a conversation with someone he didn’t know with such ease. His heart just came through every time. Steve shone so brightly with the love he had for the Lord and would share his love of God with everyone. Steve was a man who loved the Lord.
